PThis book is a carefully developed integration of mathematical models that relate Six Sigma and reliability measures for the first time. Several case studies are used throughout the book to illustrate the application of the models discussed. The strength of Six Sigma is the way in which it structures the problem and the solution methodology to solve the problem. This is probably the only concept to attract the attention of almost all companies across the world irrespective of their business mission./P
Reliability and Six Sigma offers a carefully developed integration of mathematical models that relate the Six Sigma quality management system and statistical reliability measures. The text provides a thorough explication of the core concepts of the disciplined Six Sigma program for quality management. Also introduced are the basic concepts of reliability and Six Sigma and their role in system effectiveness; essential probability and statistical techniques; tools and techniques for evaluation of system reliability; essential design-for-reliability tools. Case studies further integrate the material throughout the book to illustrate the application of the models.
